Bargany is a much-loved family home and private garden, available for special events and open for public enjoyment each May.

The Gardens first came into being in the late 18th Century, with plans by Thomas White and George Robertson in 1774, and there was a subsequent series of gardeners associated with the house, up to W S Gilpin in the 1820s. It is mainly his work that remains now in the present day.

In the Walled Garden, a ‘pineapple house’ was added by John Hay, circa 1818. This is no longer standing but the base can still be seen, as well as the outline of the original building. Look for trees like the snake bark maple and tulip trees, the Chilean flame tree, magnolia and many others — including cherry tree coverage over the path, a particularly beautiful feature in season.

Nowadays the maintenance of the gardens still remains with the family. Most recently the gardens as you see them today are thanks to Sally Anne Dalrymple Hamilton who has re-developed it over the years following a huge storm in the winter of 1998. The time and effort spent over decades are evident today as you explore the gardens for yourself.

Bargany History


The storied history of Bargany is reflected in that of its gardens — which were first established near the end of the 18th century. Many features of the existing gardens can be attributed to the work of gardener W S Gilpin in the 1820s.
